An Experience that will chill you to your bones!
Created in New Zealand, minus5° is an ice bar where you can touch, feel, and explore handcrafted ice sculptures and ice architecture made from 100% pure Canadian ice. Named for its constant frosty temperature of minus five degrees (twenty-three degrees Fahrenheit), thousands have flocked to experience this unique concept.
Everything's made of ice!
Everything inside minus5° is made of ice; the walls, the bar, the sculptures, the seats and even the glasses that you enjoy our famous vodka-based cocktails in. Our focus at minus5° is the art of ice. We have our own ice carver who changes the bar and sculptures every 6-8 weeks, continually re-inventing the experience. Sculptures can reflect the season, location, wildlife, or even corporate logos and products for private functions. The possibilities are endless.
The minus5° Experience…
Once commencing the tour, guests are kitted out in Eskimo-like ice gear which includes insulated jackets, gloves and boots. Once inside the bar, visitors are greeted with an icy wonderland of intricately hand-crafted ice sculptures and furniture.
Guests can explore the ice bar and relax on ice couches covered in deer skin, while sipping on a wide range of cocktails using only the world’s premium vodkas served in our custom-designed glasses made from NZ artesian water. A photographer, skilled in the art of “capturing the moment,” roams the bar. It is one thing to experience something so cool; however it is something else to showcase that experience to friends and family. Printed photos await guests as they complete their tour and guests are given the opportunity to purchase anything from an Eskimo hat, to the “coolest” minus5° Clothing gear.
No matter what the event, you and your companions will be treated to the coolest experience in town!
